The original hardwood floors were damaged in places so, once old carpeting and laminate flooring were removed, new flooring in dark finish was installed throughout the first floor for a uniform and sophisticated look.

Bright Living Room With Contemporary Open Staircase, Small Wood Piano and Dark Flooring
An open wall staircase gives an open look to this living room design. White walls and stairs keep the room bright and allow the green was to pop as an accent color. The dark floor creates a pleasing contrast to the white walls and grounds the design. Throw pillows on the sofa compliment the accent wall to finish the look.

An ornate Louis XV bookcase sits behind an upholstered sofa in this traditional living room. Elegant details in the space, such as the gold hardware on the bookcase and the lucite candlesticks on the coffee table, make the room feel detailed and sophisticated.
